A New Baby - Craft Consortium

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today to see my DT post for Craft Consortium using the gorgeous floral pad called Wild Rose. I love this pad and its versatility for many style of cards and today I have made a baby card which could easily double up for a young girl that loves her dolls by changing the sentiment.

My layers were tattered with my scissors and some foam tape added in between for extra dimension. I also added some Crystal Stickles Glue around the edges and onto my die cuts.

My pram was layered with two of the papers from the pad adding on some die cut flowers, lace and a pretty Floral Embellishment.

My doll stamp was fussy cut, layering her dress up with coordinating papers from the Wild Rose pad and a touch of lace.

I finished with some bunting, a stamped sentiment and lots of bling.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and please do check out Craft Consortium and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular inspiration and giveaways.

A Head Full of Worries - Cherish The Memory

Hi everyone, today I am sharing another DT post for Cherish The Memory using their amazing new collection called Summer Feelings. The collection is absolutely stunning and also has some lovely Dies to compliment the papers.

I started by using a wooden plaque I bought from a Bargain store and added a strip of pearls around the outside layering on a tattered piece of cardstock from the collection. I also added Glossy Accents, Glass Glitter and small Art Stones for a beach feel.

I stamped my sentiment onto paper from the coordinating 6x6 pad add lots of details to make it look like a shabby beach feel. I had collected sand and some shells from the beach when we were on our honeymoon many years ago and I thought this was a perfect time to use some of them.

The dreamcatcher I adore, I offset my feathers with an extra layer adding some feathers I pulled out of a cushion to give another texture. I added touches of glitter lots of pearls and a resin flower from Craft Consortium.

I hope you like my post and feel inspired to do a beach themed project.

Flowers for you - Cherish the Memory

Hello, thanks for stopping by to see my DT post with Cherish The Memory. My card today I have used a lot of the die cut flowers from my Romantic Vintage Diecut book to make this Floral bouquet on my card.

My base layers have been tattered at the edges adding a little crinkle detail into one of the corners.

My flowers and leaves have been all arranged on top of my Doily with some Silicone Glue. I added a pretty lace bow, a Pearl Embellishment and a couple of tags from the same pad.

I finished my card with some shabby thread and a couple of pretty butterflies with bling in their centres.

Veriloquent Vintage Release Blog Hop - Cheery Lynn Designs July 2017

Today at Cheery Lynn Designs is Blog Hop day and what an outstanding release of stunning Vintage Dies this is. You are going to want them all !

I squealed with excitement when I saw the Gramophone ( Phonograph Die ), it reminds me of the Gramophone that sits in my dolls house. So let me show you how I built this Die up.

I started by cutting out my Die twice in Kraft Card, once in Miri card and once in Black card. I then trimmed all the sections I wanted in each colour and kept one complete section to glue all my parts onto.

I coloured my Kraft Card with a dark red and dark brown pen to give the look of mahogany wood, gluing all the sections together. Doing this helps to give added dimension to your die cut.

I also added a little gloss varnish onto my record and cut out the middle section with an old book page. 

Finishing with touches of Stazon Rusty Brown Ink at the edges of Miri Card to age it slightly.

My sentiment was stamped with Archival Ink and mounted onto the beautiful ornate new Dusty Miller Square Die.
Finishing my card with some pretty flowers and musical notes.

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love for you to leave me a comment before you hop over to LISA'S BLOG to see what beautiful Vintage Dies she has used on her card. 

Be sure to finish the Hop to be in with a chance of winning a $20 Shopping Spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.
